The process of voting isn’t just about Election Day. Election boards across the country spend all year connecting processes, technology, and people to make voting possible—but experience tells us that the day doesn’t always go as planned. There are many moving parts to the voting process and common points of confusion for voters, which leads to questions like:
- Am I registered to vote?
- Where’s my mail-in ballot?
- At my voting location, do I go in the cafeteria door, or the gym door?
- Do I need to bring my ID?
Join John Young and Dan Singer—experienced election workers with UX and technology backgrounds—for a discussion on how we can apply service design principles to the voting process. From helping Judges of Elections manage their precincts to keeping lines short and voters informed, we’ll explore ways to put voters at the center, build a better experience for all involved, and help make every vote count.
This is part of our ongoing webinar series on tackling design and technology challenges.
